‘£40m + £1 Incoming’ ‘Get In There Arsenal For Once’ Fans On Social Media React As First Bid For Ivorian Ace Is Turned Down

Arsenal have had their first bid for Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha turned down, according to multiple reports.

The £40m offer was well below the Eagles’ reported £80m asking price, and the Gunners must now weigh up their next move.

Some supporters on Twitter think Arsenal will continue negotiations with another lowball bid:


Other fans are encouraging the club to include players in the deal to make the deal more attractive:

Zaha’s brother has already come out to say that the Ivorian international wants to move to the Emirates and has encouraged Palace to lower their valuation.

The player himself was asked about the transfer speculation after scoring in Ivory Coast’s 4-1 win over Namibia in the African Cup of Nations yesterday. The 26-year-old said he is completely focused on playing for his country:

“I don’t know we’ll see in the future. I have no comment on it the only thing that’s on my mind now is trying to win this cup. I’m fixated on is how far we go in the tournament.”

With Arsenal’s limited transfer budget, the likeliest next course of action would be to offer players in the deal. Fullback Carl Jenkinson is reportedly a Palace target following Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s departure to Manchester United. Including the defender could help talks progress.
